Postcare is known as being the 1st postcard station in Malaysia. I have always loved postcards, this concept is especially appealing to me as last year I went back into doing postcrossing. For the love of illustrations and caricatures, I was told by a friend of mine about this postcard station. I didn’t get to make time to go there until December last year. My sister and I went there a week before Christmas to do some last minute Christmas shopping.
my sister and the many postcards that we do not know which to pick, all so cute!!!
We so love the place as it is a small cozy place. We don’t have to worry if we did not bring our stationeries along, as Postcare provides pens, stamps and markers. We also don’t have to worry about not having any postcards to write on, as the postcards stocks are uncountable.
The post box!! A must “prop” to take a picture together. Will & Kay on the left. My Sis & I on the right.
There, we were entertained by Will and Kay. They are both very friendly and approachable people. Will is the founder of Postcare ; Will and Kay both creates beautiful postcards as well. I love that Postcare house a variety of postcards with different theme and style. Besides Will and Kay, there are many other local artist that create their postcards for Postcare.
Other then illustrations and caricatures, I also love postcards that shows the life of Malaysia. I guess this is where all my favourite postcards will be in. Due to distance and time, I only managed to visit Postcare once, but I managed to purchased twice from them through the internet.
See how they decorated their envelopes to be posted to me? One of them is the most recent mail. It came with the postcards I purchased for the Chinese New Year. Can you noticed the rooster stamp on the envelopes.
Some of my favourites:-
- Childhood snacks – these are so nostalgic!
Popo one of my favourite snack drawn on the postcard.
Pop Corn, Ding Dang and Tora
I know these 3 postcards would have reminded a Malaysian 90’s kid about childhood very much. Thank you so much Will for creating these postcards. (shed tears)
2. Chinese New Year
These are my personal favourites for the Chinese New Year. I love the most is the heart shaped postcard as the front is actually a Chicken. The angpows are lovely as well, it is an egg shaped when you open it up.The blue angpow has a local twist to it with the word ayam on it.

I emailed Will Sii a few questions and these are his replies;

PostCare – We Post We Care
In direct, it’s as simple as share (post) the loves (care) around the world. We decided heart/love shaped could be the best and most appropriate for our mission.

Honestly, every pieces we created, we love. Art has no limit, and our loves have no limit in loving every and each pieces.
